Congratulations Durant Cheerleaders & Coaches!!

Tonight, under the bright gym lights of Heritage High School, your Durant Cheerleaders set out to become champions once again at the WCPSS middle school cheer competition. Durant was second to perform but made a lasting impression on the judges. At the end of the night, your Durant Dolphin cheerleaders not only won their division, but were overall GRAND champions!

We are very proud of every member of the cheerleading squad and of course the coaches! When hard work, dedication, passion, and professionalism are taught and practiced, the outcome will only be great in the end. Congratulations once again to all of the Durant cheerleaders and their coaches!
